Margaret “Margie” Lawton died peacefully with her family by her side on Monday, September 14, 2020 at Chatham Kent Hospice at the age of 76.
Born on August 21, 1944, Margie was the daughter of the late Dan & Jenny Oltean.
She was pre-deceased by her husband Dowie James Edgar Lawton (1986) and is survived by her partner of 25 years Don Baker.
She will always be remembered by her sons Steven (Janice) Lawton and Jason Lawton.
Dearest grandma of Jared & Trevor Lawton, Shelby & Coral Fenner and Morgan Lawton.
Sister of Ellen, Betty, John, Pete and the late Marie, Annette, and Bill.
Fondly remembered by numerous in-laws, nieces and nephews.
Many will remember Margie from Shoppers Drug Mart on Queen where she worked for almost 30 years. She was the smiling face you would see at the back door till. She was always on the go and loved to travel. You would always find her with a Tim’s coffee in hand. She made many friends with her easy going and good-natured personality.
She loved her family and spending time with her grandchildren or as she called them her “babies”. Margie will be deeply missed by all who knew her. She touched so many lives. We take comfort in knowing she is finally at peace and will treasure the memories. You are forever in our hearts.
The family would like to extend a special thank you to Dr. Verburg, Dr. Bailey, Jacqueline from VON, Lisa DeBeck from Bayshore, Lisa Babcock, the PCCT team and Chatham Kent Hospice for their support during Margie’s journey.
As per Margie’s wishes cremation has taken place and a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
Friends planning an expression of remembrance are asked to consider the Chatham Kent Hospice.
